4 stars Kallocoain is Paatos' most consistent album. It is one of those slowly growing laid-back albums that gradually lure you into its lush enchantment, each time revealing more of its details. It probably won't register very high on your prog yardstick though, so if epic prog wizardry is your thing, you might skip this one.

However, if you like the sound and atmosphere of Portishead done by competent musicians with a deep affection for King Crimson you might enjoy this very much. The focus is on the solid and diverse song writing and the silky and smoky melancholy of Petronella Nettermalm's voice. Every songs is a true gem, with Gasoline, Happiness and Won't Be Coming Back as my personal highlights.

Kallocain is an excellent album that is in desperate need for a larger audience. However, since they are hard to categorize and don't fit into a simple box with just one appealing and recognizable tag on it, this is unlikely to happen. It's too poppy for prog heads and because of the prog tag; it is avoided by their potential audience. A typical consequence of today's pigeonholing.

Bonnek | 4/5 |
